*Things got very emotional on “The Real” Wednesday morning (03-25-15) as the ladies discussed their past and not-so-past experiences with “mean girls” and bullying.
Personal stories were shared and the hosts were supposed to give advice on standing up to bullies, but Tamar Braxton said she had no advice to give because she’s still affected by it as an adult. She broke down in tears thinking about her horrible experience in high school, and more recently, how people refer to her as a “Muppet.”
“People say it so much, sometimes I start to believe it,” she said through sobs. “I even asked [husband] Vince, I’m like, ‘Do I look like a muppet?'”
“This person has the whole world calling me that.”
Although singer K. Michelle was the first to use that word to describe Tamar during their Twitter feud of Summer 2014, Tamar didn’t name names – but expressed how the Muppet comparison has been “devastating.”
